#SoCS Feb 10/18 – Tail/Tale

Linda’s prompt for SoCS this week…

Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “tail/tale.” Use one, used them both, you decide. Enjoy!

Let me tell you a tale about a fox
A cunning fox who wore fetching socks
This dapper mammal would use his charms
To ‘fox’ even the most capable alarms
He’d work his way through chickens galore
Sneak off, then hear the farmers roar
They’d know the fox who’d tricked them so
He’d leave a sock wherever he did go
But catch him? No, they never could
Until one farm dog swore he would
He sat and hatched a daring plan
Never tried before, by dog, or man
A trap was laid, the dog stood watch
Praying his plan just wouldn’t botch
And, as luck would have it, succeed, he did
Of that cunning fox, they were finally rid!
All that was left, causing Fox to wail
Was a cut-off, furry foxy tail.

Happy Saturday Peeps!
